Understanding Japan: A Cultural History

Japan’s extraordinary culture is like no other in the world, and it remains mysterious to many of us. And that’s unfortunate, because to truly understand Japan’s influence on the world stage, one needs to understand Japan’s culture – on its own terms.

In an exciting partnership with the Smithsonian, The Great Courses presents these 24 lectures that offer an unforgettable tour of Japanese life and culture. Professor Ravina, with the expert collaboration of the Smithsonian’s historians, brings you a grand portrait of Japan.

From the dawn of Confucianism and the Meiji Restoration to World War II and the economic miracle years of 1955 to 1975, you’ll explore landmark periods of Japanese history and learn how broad events and movements introduced, innovated, and revised everything from spirituality to popular entertainment. Along the way you’ll get revealing insights into Shinto (Japan’s indigenous religion), the art of Katsushika Hokusai, literary works like The Tale of Genji and the haiku of Basho, the everyday lives of samurai, the universal appeal of filmmakers like Akira Kurosawa, foods like yakitori and tempura, and so much more.

You’ll come away from Professor Ravina’s final lecture with a stronger sense of the very soul of this one-of-a-kind nation.

Reviews

Good lectures.
This was a great basic overview of Japanese history. If you are already well versed, this may be too basic for you, but if you only have a limited background on Japan, this course will serve you well.

Worth it
This was a very interesting and comprehensive cultural history of Japan. Great context prior to my first trip there.
